MEGALOPOLIS Dennis Ekstedt

The McClure Gallery in Montreal,Canada, is pleased to feature the recent paintings of Dennis Ekstedt in his exhibition "Megalopolis". Included are approximately fifteen works on canvas which

confront the viewer with evocative images of glimmering illuminated cities. While not

landscapes so much as earthscapes, the works negotiate nonetheless landscape’s

traditional quest to identify humanity’s relationship to nature. Dennis Ekstedt's paintings

investigate and celebrate, through a palpating beauty, a contemporary version

of that query. The works are visionary as they undertake to establish how we might

feel and see ourselves in a world where the terms of co-habitation must necessarily

be redefined, where the natural and the virtual, the human and the sprawling nervous

systems of our invented technologies co-exist.
